To ensure the health and wellbeing of our parishioners the Finance Council decided that this year our Fall Supper would be a Takeout event. We need people to donate food, to prepare food, kitchen workers and to help with clean up. Signup Sheets will be available at the back of the Church. The menu choices are as follows:
Mashed potatoes Gravy Turkey/Ham Veggies
Cranberries Coleslaw/Carrot Salad Pie Squares
Spread the word. To place your order, call the parish office at (306) 236-5122 starting October 11 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm Tuesday to Friday. Payment will be collected as you pick up your meal. If there is no answer or the phone is busy, please leave a message and we will call you back. For parishioners who are homebound we will help arrange delivery to you. Enjoy the blessings of the Fall Season of Creation.
Rosary and Tea – 3:00 pm Monday-Friday throughout October – October is traditionally the month when we as Catholics make a special effort to pray the rosary every day. This year in the parish we will gather at 3:00 pm Monday to Friday to pray the rosary. Following the rosary, you are invited to stay for a cup of tea and a snack and some visiting. Let us gather to pray and to visit with one another.
World Food Day – October 16, 2022 – A World Food Day has been promoted by the Food and Agriculture Organization since 1981. The Church is concerned about the issue of hunger in the world, remembering the words of the Son of Man on the last judgment of the nations, “…I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink …” (Mt 25.35) Taken from Ordo page 38
Grace United Church Beef Supper – On October 16 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM the United Church is having a Beef Supper. All are welcome. The cost for adults is $18.00; 6 – 12 years old is $9.00 and all others is $2.00.
Tree Removal – Thanks to Terry Calvert, Chris Bencharski, Rhys Beaulieu and Ben Barker the poplars by the Parish Hall are in the process of being taken down. Their roots and their branches were encroaching on the Parish Hall and the power lines and to avoid further issues we decided that our best course of action was to take them down. It is our hope to plant some trees that pose fewer challenges to our building and power line.
Furnace Installation in Parish Hall – This past week two new furnaces were installed in the Parish Hall. Thanks to Ron’s Plumbing and Heating for their work. We can now rest easy that the Hall will be in good shape come winter. The previous furnaces which had been installed when the Hall was built were beginning to fail. Because of the water pipes the Finance Council decided that it was time to change the furnaces. Because of their age parts were hard to come by.
Thank you to all who have completed their ministry sign-up sheets – A special word of thanks to all of you who completed the Ministry Sign-Up Sheets. We have updated our parish list and we will soon have new schedules for our ministries. We will also schedule workshops to help refresh our memories regarding how we are to do the various ministries. If you are late with your sheet, please complete it and bring it in. It is never too late to help our parish!
Sacramental Preparation – If your child has not yet prepared for and celebrated the sacrament of reconciliation, please register your child by completing the registration forms now available. You will be required to take part in a parent meeting scheduled for October 13 at 6:30 pm in the church, where you will receive materials for the preparation and formation of your child. The Church reminds us that parents are the first teachers of their children and bear the responsibility for preparing their children for the celebration of the sacraments.
It is also imperative that the parents and the children physically take part in the Sunday liturgy as frequently as possible. On the one hand they belong to this faith community and on the other they will learn more about Jesus Christ and their faith by taking part in the faith life of the community.

For example, the children’s catechetics program Finding God, youth and young adult events and retreats, and programs such as the Forming Intentional Disciples initiative. Your gift and your prayers will help make this year’s appeal a success. Our parish is asked to raise $16,118.00 this year for the appeal. Every contribution counts. We can do this if, after thoughtful consideration and prayer, every one of us gives according to our ability.

In our Christian tradition we have been encouraged to give thanks and praise to God. From the moment of our baptism we learn to give thanks and praise to God in our homes, in school, in our workplaces and for sure in our parish liturgy and in our parish activities. Our culture provides us with moments to give thanks. This weekend and this week we can practice gratitude in our words and in our actions. As we sit down with family and friends to celebrate this wonderful day let us nurture thanksgiving in our lives and in our families.
1. I am thankful for….
2. I notice my breath and my heartbeat for 1 minute – I give thanks for the gift of my life.
3. I notice the earth: the air, the sun, the water, and all living things. I notice and I give thanks!
4. I am surrounded by love – family and friends. I give thanks for those who love me.
5. God dwells within me and I give thanks for the work God has given me to do.
